Emma Shychuck Honors English 9 Oedipus Rex Paper 18 Mar. 2013 The Irony in Oedipus Rex Oedipus Rex is full of irony, dramatic irony that is. Dramatic irony is when the audience knows what is going to happen, but the characters do not. There was really no suspense like in horror movies where you don’t know what is going to happen next, because the audience knows the story already. This takes away from the playwright because he cannot wow the audience with original ideas.

Ritchie used many new tools with special techniques as graphic design that made the movie fancier. However, he forgot that the visual of the movie is still a component creating the plot. At the beginning, audiences can see the colors in the movie were faint and the boring blue light; it was happened throughout of the movie. In King Arthur movie, the Ritchie draws some quick and intelligent warning strings here; he does not want to communicate or tell the story in the usual way, so he has found a way to convey a lot of information very quickly, taking an aggressive approach to providing background information and never slip into the grave. To compare to "The Sword in the Stone'', Talbot brings the readers to the first of the story that make audiences have a clear look of the main plot points of the story.
The play starred just four actors; Martyn Ellis, Josefina Gabrielle, Simon Gregor and Simon Paisley Day who had to play all of the characters. The Fiery Angel production company approached Patrick Barlow to adapt the script, which then lead to the success of the play in the west end. ‘The Thirty-Nine Steps’ is an incredibly fast-paced story about one man named Richard Hannay who gets caught up in the adventures of a spy. It begins at a London Theatre, while he is watching the powers of ‘Mr Memory’. When a fight breaks out and a gun is fired, Mr Hannay finds himself holding a frightened Annabella Smith.
After fooling the group into believing he is also a victim, he becomes addicted to all kinds of support groups when he realises it cures his insomnia temporarily. During the course of the story the narrator meets a man named Tyler Durden and moves in with him when his apartment is blown up in a gas explosion. The narrator stops going to the support meetings and the two men start ‘fight club’, where men come to fight each other and escape their normal lives. Tyler quickly becomes the leader of fight club and turns it into an anti-consumerist, anti-corporate terrorist organisation known as ‘Project Mayhem’. My favourite quote from the novel deals with the running theme of consumerism: “It’s only after you’ve lost everything,” Tyler says, “that you’re free to do anything.” Normally the term ‘losing everything’ would obviously carry with it negative connotations but Tyler means that when a person rids themselves of all their material possessions it is only then that they are truly free.

Even though he was a little over the top sometimes, it made sense for the sense of the character he was playing. I think Sean Penn was the only actor they got right for the movie. Everyone else should have been replaced because they made it evident that they were there for the money only, and not the enjoyment of making a good movie for the audience. Needless to say, Penn was the only one that shined. I thought Sean Penn, who played Mickey Cohen in the movie did a marvelous job recreating a gangster in himself.
